Moyer Trade Perplexing

It would have been nice to see Jamie Moyer pitch out his career here.

I can't begrudge the Mariners for throwing the towel in on their season in light of their current double-digit losing streak, nor can I fault them for wanting to move veterans for prospects to fill out their anemic minor-league ranks. But I do find it a bit fishy that they've decided to trade Jamie Moyer, who in many people's eyes has achieved icon status along the lines of an Edgar Martinez. While there's no ruling out Moyer's eventually retiring a Mariner at some point, that scenario now seems iffy, at best. It would have been nice to allow him to pitch out his career here.
